Getting short hair is a big commitment. Not only does it take longer to style (Yes, IT'S TRUE.), but it costs more to maintain—you'll need to get regular trims for your cut to look its best.

While there are numerous pegs and articles out there for women (and men) with long and medium length hair, there are rarely ever any for short hairstyles. But don't fret! We gathered a list of short hairstyles + haircut ideas you can try.

Whether you plan on getting a lob, a bob, or a pixie cut, we have their different types, as well as various ways to style them. Keep scrolling for the ultimate short hairstyle inspo!

Piecey

A piecey look can work if you have an oval, heart, or square face. It's more textured and rougher around the edges than a classic pixie, but it's also not as bold as an undercut. ;)

Low Pony

You're in luck! With your hair length, an easy-to-do messy or sleek low ponytail will make you look polished and cool.

Teased Half-Pony

To avoid a lifeless half-ponytail, slightly tease your roots and add salt spray to give it a ton of body and texture!

Hair Type: Straight, Wavy

Face Shape: Heart, Diamond, Round, Oval

Faux Bangs

If your pixie is starting to grow out, create some faux bangs by creating a deep side part and slicking your tresses down to your forehead with a bit of gel, hair wax, or pomade.

Hair Type: Straight, Wavy

Face Shape: Round, Heart, Oval

Twisted Updo

To achieve this romantic short hairstyle, work on curled hair with a bit of texturizing spray. Coil the ends inwards and secure with hairpins. Don't worry about making it look perfect—the messier, the better!

The Hun

Can't tie your hair up into a bun? Try the hun (a nickname for the high bun). It's a great way to prevent hair from getting on your face while providing your features an instant *lift.*

Hair Type: Straight, Wavy, Curly

Pompadour

For a modern take on this retro hairstyle, add more texture and grit with a hair wax so it looks messier.

Textured Braid

Yes, you can still create an updo with short hair! This style is a mix of chignon + French braid. The key technique here is to curl the hair first for it to have texture and volume. And for the strands that are too short to be braided, simply twist and overlap the sections and tuck in the ends with hairpins. 

Hair Type: Straight, Wavy, Curly

Face Shape: Round, Oval, Heart

Low Messy Bun

You can easily achieve this slicked-back look with a lot of hair gel and pins to keep your strands in place, while allowing a few to be wild and free.
